Day by Day Overview
Sipi Falls is a series of three waterfalls in Eastern Uganda in the district of Kapchorwa, northeast of Sironko and Mbale. The waterfalls lie on the edge of Mount Elgon National Park near the Kenyan border and the area is often the starting point for hikes up Mt. Elgon. There is a route which starts in Budadiri and follows the Sasa trail to the summit and then descends down the Sipi trail back into the Sipi falls. Hikes around the falls offer fantastic views of the Karamoja plains, Lake Kyoga, and the slopes of Mt. Elgon.Visiting these waterfalls is a 7km hike that is full of steep ascents and descents, ladders, and farms. There are many lodges around Sipi Falls and these offer spectacular views of the main drop of Sipi Falls. The second waterfall is 75m tall and consists of upper cascades and a tiny cave behind it. The third Sipi Falls is steep and muddy. It offers stunning views of cultivated western slopes of mountain Elgon. It is 85m tall, given the height, the vigor of its flow spews mist which as a result faint rainbows are seen from the partial sunlight that breaks through the over cast skies.
There are a number of lodges, backpackers and campsites in the area offering a range of accommodation for all budgets. With a cooler climate than most of the country, Sipi Falls is a nice place to unwind, relax and literally chill out away from the hustle of the towns and cities. Being in the foothills of Mt.Elgon, professional local guides trained by Italian climbers offer abseiling along the side of the main 100m Sipi Falls as well as climbing on 14 bolted sport routes with a range of difficulty.
On this beautiful day you will wake up very early in the morning and have an African breakfast before going on a coffee tour. Learn how to prepare your own coffee from the garden to the cup. After this awesome experience you will be driven to the airport or to your hotel.
